We work with two manufacturers to ensure that our spas are equipped with the highest quality equipment in the US. Balboa specializes in spa packs (the computer) and is the top company in the country for user-friendly topsides (jet controls). Waterway is the leading company in the US for spa pumps and jets, known for its durable and innovative massage therapy solutions. Both of these companies continuously innovate their products, resulting in spa equipment thats built to last.
Some things to consider are:
- What is the size of your family?
- Do you frequently have guests over?
- How tall are the members of your family?
It is important to consider legroom for taller individuals to keep their knees below the water, and seat depth for smaller individuals to keep their heads above the water.
What is a lounger seat? In hot tubs, one available seating style is the lounger. Loungers offer a convenient solution for full-body hydrotherapy, targeting the shoulders, back, arms, hips, legs, and feet. To ensure comfort while using a lounger, it’s important to be able to reach the foot jets without straining. This seating style is popular among customers seeking hot tubs to assist with their therapy needs.
Open Seating Style
“What is open seating?” There is another seating style in hot tubs called the bench style. These seats range from a straight, upright, dinner-table posture to a tilted, zero-gravity recline. Bench seats can be curved and contouring or open and flat. This style typically allows for more space to accommodate additional people within the hot tub.
Jet Type & Placement
Jet positioning is crucial for individuals who need targeted therapy for their bodies. Various types of jets are available, offering different massage experiences. Smaller jets deliver a more intense and precise massage, while wider jets provide a gentler massage. Volcano/whirlpool jets, located on the floor or lower side wall, are high-powered and offer deep penetration, moving a significant amount of water per minute.
Types of Pumps
Circulation pumps are smaller and designed to filter and heat the water. Two-speed pumps are designed to circulate at low speed and then massage at high speed. Single-speed pumps are used to supply the massage jets. Hot tubs use high-volume pumps, which allow a large volume of water to flow at low pressure. The horsepower of a pump determines how much power each jet receives.
